We’re looking for a Senior PHP Developer to join a fantastic, highly charitable company based in south Manchester, just 2 tram stops from the city centre. It’s got a heavy backend focus so we’re looking for strong OOP and database experience and someone who is keen to get stuck into complex, data heavy projects!

This is not your run of the mill commercial company – these guys care! Over the last 10+ years they’ve become a key presence in an ever-growing industry where fair trade is more important than ever. If this wasn’t enough, they also reinvest their revenue back into the communities they work to help. This includes providing training and advice to get people into employment as well a number of social regeneration projects.

This is a highly charitably company, so this position should appeal to someone who is not only interested in a well-paid job with great career opportunities, but someone who is also keen to know both they and their company are making a positive impact to society.

As one of their developers, you will have the opportunity to work on and help improve the very system that makes all of this possible. Not only is there this well-established workflow management system to get your teeth into, there are also several exciting new projects already confirmed for the very near future – so don’t expect each day to be the same!

The aim is to provide customers with access to a host of services and solutions, linking them to clients to ensure the best prices in a transparent and user-friendly manner. User friendly is the key phrase here, so as everything can be tracked from start to finish by everyone involved.

If you’re a PHP developer with plenty of OOP experience looking to make that step up to a senior role or already in a senior position and keen to get your teeth stuck into something new, this is the opportunity for you.

Experience in the following is a must:

·PHP (PHP7 is a plus)



The full LAMP stack in being used on site as well as Vue.JS, the workflow management system is currently built in CodeIgniter – there may be plans to upgrade this in the future.

You will be responsible for the processing and accessibility of massive amounts of data, making it visible to all parties. From day one you will be involved in projects which involve building solutions to enable them to calculate fees, collect revenue and price check against existing data.

We’re looking for someone highly skilled in backend development, ideally with a little bit of frontend experience so you can make a few tweaks here and there when necessary. With several upcoming projects already confirmed, they are looking for a creative and ambitious thinker who can bring fresh ideas to the table, implement new tech and be involved in technical architecture design.

On offer is a strong salary, bonus scheme, cash healthcare plan and a significantly high pension contribution, as well as flexible working. They are in a great location, just 2 stops on the tram from the city centre with free parking also available and all the motorway network links nearby.

If you’re an ambitious and a forward-thinking developer looking to hit the ground running and have an immediate impact, this could be the new challenge you’re looking for.

Send across your CV and we’ll be in touch!
